Dr. Arthur Schwartz, Aura’s CTO, comments: “I just returned from Korea where I helped integrate this new advance system onto a military vehicle. This new three-phase capability will provide Aura with an opportunity to bid on numerous new upcoming programs for the Korean army. This is a new capability for the AuraGen/Viper system that expands military applications to more advanced and complex systems.”

Mr. Melvin Gagerman, Aura’s CEO, notes: “Our business with the South Korean military is expanding as we are being integrated into a number of new programs. To date, we delivered over 300 systems to the Korean Army and are scheduled to deliver an additional 220 systems by the end of September. We are also anticipating additional significant contracts from the Korean Army during this year.”
